Find out in this report how the two eDiscovery solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"They have a strong development team and are market leaders in the space."
"We specialize in Commvault and IntelliSnap. Commvault covers all our customers' backup needs in one system, and they have complete control over their Snapshot backups. Snapshots are important to our customers because of the size of their data sets."
"The solution is very stable and offers a good level of performance."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"I can collect the target data, then we connect it to Commvault. There is not another system that can connect to our target database or target storage. This is very important for us, because there is the threat of malware right now. This can protect not only the product, but also the backup data from outside threats."
"Commvault integrates well with all types of operating systems and supports heterogeneous environments."
"We can use it on-premises and in the cloud."
"Commvault can actually come in and assist you with aspects of the implementation - and they are quite helpful."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"Its dashboard could be improved to provide a summarized version of all the jobs instead of having to go through each one of them. We should easily be able to glance at all issues. If I had not gone with the on-premise version, I would have had regular reports with the cloud version. It would be an advantage if they increase the compression rate of the backup. I am keeping it on-prem, so I'll need more disks depending on the policies that I have in the retention period. Its price could also be lower. If a good solution can be cheaper, it is always an advantage."
"It is a little more complicated than it really needs to be."
"With so many features, sometimes you cannot find what you are looking for in the interface and you have to dig into books online to find out how to solve an issue."
"Setup is complex."
"Commvault is a rich system that might scare somebody the first time they see it because it feels so huge."
"We've run into some issues when attempting to restore very large numbers of files. Of course, that's more of a design issue."
"Persistent binding is a feature that I would like to see in the next release of Commvault."
"The retention log feature could be an issue for us and can be improved. The backup schedule can also be better in terms of how you set it up."
"Technical support could be better."

Reviews from Real Users
Commvault stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Some of the major ones are its backup, recovery, and data protection features as well as its centralized management.
Sheron B. a systems engineer at PAREXEL International Corporation writes, “I like that you have complete hooks into and total control of your data. The data is well-protected. It doesn't age off until it's copied. That's a big feature right there. When you reach the end of your retention, it does not expire until the secondary copy is completed. That allows you to hold onto data that otherwise would have aged off by retention. I like that feature. It's hard to just delete or lose data using the Commvault platform.
PeerSpot users note the effectiveness of Commvault. An engineer at a tech services company writes, "When it comes to recovery, Commvault is undeniably one of the best technologies out there. It's got all the different granularity levels that a business requires to get your information back to production. For example, we have their commission discovery, individual items recovery, mailbox recovery, databases, and different tables. Some databases can be recovered individually. This level of granularity enables us to get the most value out of the product."
